    New York Daily News

    What wants to be a screwball comedy is run over by preposterous character motivation and a clunky plot. show more

    John DeFore The Hollywood Reporter

    A rom-com whose agreeable individual elements aren't enough to sell the witless contrivance around which they revolve. show more

    Roger Moore McClatchy-Tribune News Service

    With this “Girl” and her bicycle, the cute bits, rare laugh out loud moments, occasionally zippy lines and limply obvious farcical predicaments are never more than instantly forgettable. show more

    Slant Magazine

    The film turns the miscommunication between cultures into an utterly lifeless romantic comedy best appreciated as a travel guide for first-time tourists to Paris. show more

    The word convoluted does no justice to just how poorly designed Girl on a Bicycle is. It is also stereotypical, unfunny, unromantic, absurd, sitcomish, insulting to several European ethnicities and a slave to what Roger Ebert used to call "The Idiot Plot Syndrome." show more

    Neil Genzlinger The New York Times

    It’s all light as a feather, with Jeremy Leven, the writer and director, landing some good multinational jokes along the way. show more

    Village Voice

    Girl on a Bicycle is like Micki + Maude minus the outrage, complexity, or crack timing. show more

    Sheri Linden Los Angeles Times

    Jeremy Leven's attempt at old-school romantic comedy, set in a postcard-pretty tourist's vision of Paris, is more of a foolish plod than a weightless rollick. show more
